Looks really dire for the rest of the day, and there could easily be 30-40mm of rain all told. Not an outdoor day really.  :wink:

 Loads of flood reports this morning, quite a few major roads shut! Thought I was going to 'come a cropper', when the van aqua-planed last night!

Total of rain in Ferryhill for yesterday/today stands at 49 mm (just shy of 2"). I think we'll be getting some more today.

Here's some news from the BBC

The river level at Sunderland Bridge, Croxdale is getting worryingly high again



The River Wear has reportedly burst it's banks in Chester-le-Street, and there is a Flood Warning out for Page Bank and Durham Elvet Riverside

Here is the Environment Agency Flood Warning page

Couldn't get to Dton this morning, roads closed for flooding/breakdowns/accidents all over the place!

Revised rainfall totals for Ferryhill for 24-25th September 2012

24th Sept  30.2mm
25th Sept  38.2mm

A single day with >30mm of rain is infrequent. Two consecutive days is rare indeed.
